Home cover series! First up, "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by Bob Dylan

Hey guys!

I always love listening to people doing covers of songs that I love on YouTube. You can hear so many great interpretations of songs that you love!

I decided to start a "home cover series" on YouTube. I'm planning on taking requests and learning some new covers. (I already have a few that I'm going to do from my last round of requests on Facebook as well as my Kickstarter page.) YouTube is a great place to play covers also because it gives me a chance to do songs that I wouldn't normally play out. (I don't really do a lot of covers at shows normally, and when I do, I want to make sure they're songs that everyone knows.) But here, I get a chance to share my versions of some more obscure songs. I'll also be posting quite a bit of "mainstream" covers though as well because I'm pretty open minded when it comes to music, and I like a LOT of different things. I might even do songs that I don't necessarily like. (Sometimes I think it's really fun to play acoustic versions of songs that I think are ridiculous. I did promise my friend, Tommy, a Katy Perry cover even!)

I like learning and playing covers, though. I like paying tribute to other artists, and I like challenging myself to make someone else's song my own. Plus, covers are just fun. :)

If you have any requests for future covers, leave a comment here!

But I'd like to start this whole thing of with one of my favorite covers. It's a song that everyone knows, a song that everyone has covered, and one of the first covers that I learned! I've been playing this song since I was 14, and it still hasn't gotten old to me.

So I hope you enjoy!
